WorkLab and Short Stay Lets at WestOne, Gibraltar

09 Apr 18

WorkLab, Gibraltar’s new co-working facilities, is a little bit different; the least that would be expected from award-winning developers at the WestOne complex that comes on line this month.

Located at Europort Road, in the heart of Gibraltar’s business district, WestOne’s WorkLab offers modern, beautifully designed and fully equipped office space, as well as communal spaces for users to develop those connections and mixed-skill communities that can generate creative energy flows for business success. 

Aimed at young start-ups as well as the creatives and techies whose skills are in such great demand for the new tech industries, especially businesses working in fintech and the cryptospace, WorkLab offers a range of contracts to suit a variety of budgets. These include short term offerings, which are likely to appeal to professionals or businesses that require space for specific projects, or for start-ups testing the market and establishing themselves prior to taking the plunge on a longer term property commitment.

What makes WorkLab stand out is that it is situated in a brand new complex that includes a variety of accommodation: a range of apartments available for purchase, rental apartments for long term rentals, and short-stay apartments. The rental apartments are fully furnished and come with all the expected modern comforts, such as WiFi, TV and satellite channels, fully equipped kitchens and independent air conditioning. 

For business people travelling to Gibraltar to attend specific events such as sector-wide conferences, corporate training or working on a project such as product development, the short term private apartment option is often a useful solution. It also provides a good alternative to hotel accommodation for Gibraltar’s many visitors, from those who want to spend time with family but do not want to lodge with family, to those who have chosen Gibraltar for a brief city break.

WestOne’s location also adds to its overall appeal. Besides being situated across the road from a number of Government departments, including Town Planning and Financial Services, it is also in close proximity to the offices of Gibraltar’s regulatory authority and the Financial Services Commission. There are numerous cafes and bars in the vicinity, Gibraltar’s main commercial centre is only a short walk away, and the leisure marinas are also within walking distance. Added to this, it is only a brief drive from Gibraltar’s International Airport and the land border with Spain.

WestOne is the latest of development initiatives in Gibraltar that enhances the Rock’s offering of modern city living combined with modern city working spaces.
